FEB 16, 2015: WestJet launched new, non-stop service between Edmonton and Kamloops, British Columbia, on board its fleet of Canadian-made Bombardier Q400 NextGen aircraft. The inaugural flight departs from Edmonton International Airport. “This is a prime example of the strategic advantage of WestJet Encore,” said Ferio Pugliese, Executive Vice-President, WestJet, and President, WestJet Encore. “One of the original purposes of our regional airline was to enhance frequencies in smaller Canadian communities which, until WestJet Encore came along, were challenged by the capacity of our 737s. We are very pleased to offer service between Edmonton and Kamloops on our 78-seat Bombardier Q400s, and look forward to welcoming both business and leisure travellers on board beginning today.” “Kamloops is a great getaway destination with skiing, golfing, wineries, and more; and for Kamloops, Edmonton is a big draw for business, shopping and festivals, and it’s a key connection for workers commuting to northern Alberta and northern Canada,” said Tom Ruth, President and CEO of Edmonton International Airport. “WestJet has been a great partner for EIA. They have invested significantly in Edmonton, and this flight will help drive our region’s economy by bringing more visitors and business here.”
